    An independent news website sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. The Conversation launched in Australia in March 2011 and in the UK in May 2013. It is a not for profit educational entity, funded by universities, that aims to rebuild trust in journalism by providing independent, high quality and authenticated information. The articles, written by academics and researchers with some help from professional journalists, are organised by subject areas like in any online version of a broadsheet newspaper: Arts & Culture, Business & Economy, Education, Environment & Energy, Science & Technology, etc. Interestingly, each article displays a disclosure statement indicating the author’s funding and any potential conflict of interest. The Fact Check UK section includes the statement being checked (e.g. ‘Is freezing eggs really ‘extremely unsuccessful’?), the link to its original source, a Verdict and a Review by an academic who gives his/her opinion on whether and why the author of the statement is right or wrong.
